Hexadecimal Color Codes

The hex code can be divided into 3 sections, red, green, and blue. The first 2 characters represent the red, the next 2 characters represent green, and the last 2 characters represent blue. The range of values for each color go from 00 to FF, with 00 having no weight and is darker, and FF having more weight and is lighter. For example the progression of values from 00 to 11 would go like this: 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10, 11 and so on. For example the following code is for the color

Red: #FF0000
Green: #00FF00
Blue: #0000FF

Mixing different values and weights of different color sections creates the different color patterns. For example, #FF9900 a mix of red and dark green would make a shade of orange. Making the value all 0's: #000000 would make black while making all values f: #FFFFFF would make white.
